In the spiritually receptive, loyalty to the guru rises
spontaneously when the disciple’s heart is bathed
in the aura of the guru’s unconditional love. The soul
knows that it has found at last a true friend,
counselor, and guide. The disciple strives therefore
to reciprocate the guru’s unconditional love, especially
when tested, even as the faith and loyalty of Jesus’
disciples were often tried with non-understanding. Many
were with Jesus at the feasts and sermons, but how
few at the cross!
Paramahansa Yogananda—The Second Coming of Christ:
Yogananda is describing the perfect disciple. There are only a few.
Most disciples are there for the feast. When the guru suffers very few will be there.
Those who are there when Guru suffers get liberated in the same birth
But your mind well deceive you. Circumstances will make it impossible. And then it is not just being physically there. There is a Lot more!
